    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Yahoo in February 2015.

    Interview

    The process took three days. First one on Thursday, and the following on Sunday. The whole process took around a week. I like the interview process, although the second round is a little bit quick due to some computer problems for the recruiter.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo in February 2015.

    Interview

    Took about a month from start to finish. There were two interviews. Both were done over the phone along with an online collab coding tool. Both of the interviewers were extremely friendly and seemed like they genuinely wanted me to be comfortable enough to answer the questions properly. They were open to multiple solutions to a problem and appreciated the different (efficient) approaches to a problem.

    Interview Questions

    • First interview: Different ways to find first unique char from a given word, Big O Notation, Qualitative questions.
      Second interview: Find the 10000th Hamming number efficiently, design question

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    They interviewed me few months after talking me to at my college career fair. I had two interviews. The first one was one simple OO concepts and basic programming questions. The second one was more focussed on front end questions and I didn't know the front end concepts really well. It was pretty clear after that I wasn't going to make it after that. I had another deadline just a few days after that so heard back from them regarding it pretty soon.

    Even though I didn't get through. I liked their overall interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews.

    I had a negative experience. The person who contacted me asked me if I could interview at a certain time, during which I replied I had an exam and offered many other times for an interview on following days. After a week of no response, I followed up, and was told I will be receiving phone interviews at times other than ones I had listed.

    The first interview went well, but the second interviewer seemed to think I was incompetent and disregarded my suggestions for the solution even though he later suggested the same things.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Yahoo in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very bad experience. They sent a new hire for interview who has limited knowledge of anything. Very bad of Yahoo to send such a newbie for interview when I myself have 2+ years of industry experience. Also I was told that I will be reimbursed for cab fare which I never was.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Yahoo (La Jolla, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I talked with Yahoo at my college job fair and I was invited to an oncampus interview that will take place a couple of days later. Everything was really prompt - that evening I received an email from an HR rep with more logistic details about the upcoming interview. The employee I spoke to at the fair (who was really nice!) was the one who interviewed me. It was a coding interview and was about an hour long. Unfortunately, I struggled because I wasn't prepared enough, but my interview was very pleasant throughout the whole thing. Overall, it was a positive learning experience and I recommend college students to apply for internships with Yahoo.

    Interview Questions
